Over the past several years, the BodySafe inspection program has been working on a complaint basis and not conducting routine/new inspections. This deviation from standard protocol is a result of constraints imposed by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. As a result, inspection data may be skewed and give the impression that inspections are being conducted at pre-pandemic levels. It is our expectation that regular inspection protocols will resume in the future. As of Monday, January 16th 2023, we have retired this dataset. We hope to expand inspections as public health services return to normal. For a copy of the most recent inspection report, please email BodySafe at

Starting July 1, 2013, under the revised Municipal Code Chapter 545, Licensing By-Law, all establishments offering hairstyling or barbering services were required to get a PSS licence and post their inspection notices at or near the entrance of the business, so that it is clearly visible to the public. All these establishments are included on the BodySafe website. Establishments offering other services such as tattooing, micropigmentation, ear and body piercing, electrolysis, manicures, pedicures and aesthetics will be phased in over the next few years.
